Keynote Address: What will sustainability look like in 10 years?
  • It is certainly hard to predict with the average temperature rising by 0.07° each year leading to an increase in water scarcity, melting arctic ice and sea level rise. We already know that if we continue on this path that life will become more and more difficult to exist on Earth as easily as we do now. 
  • To halt the effects of climate change and other unsustainable behaviors, we can use the UNSDGs as a guideline to make the changes necessary to give us a more positive outlook for sustainability 10 years from now.
